Me too!

Even with our still messed up train system, it's been empty and the streets are pretty clear and it's quiet.  I like it.

I like this month.  Next month, things go crazy with midterms and year end stuff at work, bonus calculations, people being upset about various things to do with payroll since Christmas is coming.

I wish it was that way here :( Traffic was worse than usual today but a lot of it is due to the people leaving after the F1 race stuff that happened this weekend. Hopefully the rest of the week will be quieter though.

Oh, that's annoying. I once got caught in the traffic at Texas Motor Speedway after a race got out. Took me 2 hours to move a few miles!

I swear I don't understand traffic here. I can't figure out why we have to slam on the brakes if a cop is on the other side of the highway! And why do I go from 70 to stopped for absolutely no reason?!?!

Ugh, I think that every damn time it happens. Or if there is a wreck on teh other side of the road. We don't need to slow down to 30! 

Then, on the other side of the coin, you have the speedsters who glare at you for being in the "fast" lane and only going 10 miles over the speed limit. People are crazy when they get behind a wheel.

1/2 my team is in Canada so they have already had their Thanksgiving and it's business as usual.  The other 1/2 (the US half) is cramming as many meetings, etc. as possible into these 2-3 days before we all leave for the holiday.  Ugh.  But, I'm not complaining.  I only work 2 days this week then I'm off until next week Tuesday.  Yeah!!

Same! I love the light traffic. Except the cops do too, so you have to watch speeds on the highways. I saw 3 people pulled over on the way to work :) And half our management are out on vacation this week! YAY
